On the fourteenth day of February Happy Valentine’s Day is an annual holiday that celebrates the love between family members, friends and romantic partners since at least as early the Middle Ages. This feast today is often associated with lovers who share their devotion to romantic symbols such as flowers, chocolates and cards that are generally known as Valentine.
Most people can tell you that Valentine’s Day celebrates the Roman Catholic Saint Valentin, but looking back in history, there were two or three, maybe Valentine to whom little is known with the dated February. Some will say that we have Geoffrey Chaucer to thank for the first pairing of romantic love with Valentine’s Day in 1382.
More than 50 percent of all Valentine’s Day cards are purchased during the six days before the Valentine’s Day comes.
The most popular theory about Valentine’s Day is the origin of that Emperor Claudius II did not want to Roman men to marry during the war. Bishop Valentine went against his wishes and performed secret wedding. To do this, Valentine was arrested and executed. While in prison, he wrote a note to his jailer’s daugter signing it “From Your Valentine”.
